HarmonyOS 2 billion devices 2023

HarmonyOS is currently ruling as the China-exclusive (majorly) operating system and Huawei is looking to install HarmonyOS in 2 billion devices by 2023.

Yes, the aim is quite big but if we look into the progress that this software has made over the past three years, the company has already achieved many milestones that we can’t ignore.

How?

Let’s dive into the past installations, Huawei achieved over 200 million installations by the end of 2021 but it was only for Huawei devices. Meanwhile, HarmonyOS Connect, an operating system for third-party company products, launched 100+ million fresh devices with HarmonyOS pre-installed.

Moving to 2022, Huawei posted a heavy 320 million HarmonyOS installation mark in its own devices, and then HarmonyOS Connect launched with 250+ million third-party products.

Stepping further, OpenHarmony, an open-source version of HarmonyOS has also come so far to show its worth in the tech industry and made rapid growth in the last two years after its submission to OpenAtom open-source foundation.

The combined weight of HarmonyOS for Huawei devices and HarmonyOS Connect stands above
570 million devices, which is the biggest single-year growth made by any operating system. However, the actual number may have been around 700 million.
